The study of the braking process in the Ac motors has a great importance due to the need for reducing the braking and stopping time. The aims of this study are to investigate, to analyze and to discuss the most effective and efficient braking method, which can be obtained by combining two or more different conventional braking methods. The paper illustrates the behavior of the three -phase induction motor, when one of the stator phases is disconnected in addition to the plugging of the other two phases. Furthermore it suggests how to improve the work performance of the induction motor by using a three-phase induction motor with a split - phase. Therefore, mathematical models have been developed and simulation is carried out by using MATLAB software and Microsoft Excel program. The obtained results show that the braking process time is highly reduced and stopping time is rapidly satisfied.
